Clever Urfin Jus has lost his wooden soldiers but wants to regain unlimited power. With the help of his clever bear and the sly clown, he gains possession of sorceress Gingema’s book, which is closely guarded in Emerald City. It fulfills every wish of its master, provided that he also owns the magic silver shoes. Meanwhile, brave Elli from Kansas has grown into a delightful teenager and has found shy Tim who is head over ears in love with her. Together with her faithful dog Totoshka, they return to Oz just in time to help the inhabitants of Emerald City with its ruler Scarecrow the Wise, the Iron Woodman and the Brave Lion. But none of them has expected the cunning of evil Urfin Jus. He has forged a treacherous conspiracy with his cronies, where Tim's clumsiness seems to play into his hands. Urfin’s chances of gaining unrestricted control over Oz are not bad.
